Randall Leon Chesser has Autism and officials believe he might have wondered off. Chesser is described as a non verbal child. Although, his family fears something worse happened. Lewellyn Chesser, Randall’s mother said, “He won’t go by himself, so we think that somebody took him.” This is a bit strange since one would expect that a child with Autism might wander off.
“We’re afraid somebody has kidnapped him,” Randall’s grandmother, Maeola Chesser, said.
Randall’s mother said her son would not have left their yard without someone familiar to him.
“He would’ve never left…went hear the road, nothing without somebody,” Lewellyn Chesser said. “(His) Brother, sister, mom, dad…an adult. He would have never left this yard.”
